Intel Atom Processor E3900 Series: Enabling Next Generator of Smart and Connectied IoT Devices stars

New Processor Series Moves Computing Power Nearer to Sensor, Alleviating Need to Push All Processing to Data Center

The Internet of Things (IoT) is linking billions of smart and connected devices to each other, creating a wave of change in how we live and work. The number of connected machines is expected to dramatically increase – by 2020, 50 billion devices (Cisco IBSG) will create 44 zettabytes (of 44 trillion gigabytes) of data annually, and will require much more processing power at the edge, and in the fog to network in order to maintain viability.

To support these experiences, today at IoT Solutions World Congress, Intel is announcing the latest generation of the Intel® Atom™ processors for IoT applications. The new Intel Atom processor E3900 series is designed from the ground up to support the rapid development and the growing complexity of IoT businesses. The result is a processor exceptionally capable of delivering on performance, processing and scalability.

Allegro Microsystems, LLC Introduces New Dual Full-Bridge PWM Motor Driver IC

Two Drivers in One Package Share Charge Pump Components to Save PCB Space

Allegro MicroSystems, LLC announces a new 40 V dual full-bridge driver capable of driving two DC motors with outputs rated up to 3.2 A. Allegro’s A5995 device includes fixed off-time pulse-width modulation (PWM) regulators for current control. Each DC motor can be controlled in forward, reverse, coast and brake modes with industry standard PHASE, ENABLE inputs. Fast or slow PWM current decay is selected via the MODE input. This new device is targeted at the consumer, industrial and office automation markets with end applications that include, laser, inkjet and label printers, copiers, vending, robot vacuums, and ATM machines.

Introducing industry's first fully integrated DDR memory power solution

TI's 4-A synchronous DC/DC buck converter simplifies design and shrinks system size in automotive and industrial applications

Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced the industry's first fully integrated power management solution for double date rate (DDR)2, DDR3 and DDR3L memory subsystems in automotive and industrial applications. The TPS54116-Q1 DC/DC buck converter is a 2.95-V to 6-V input, 4-A synchronous step-down converter with a 1-A peak sink/source DDR termination and buffered reference that reduces system size by up to 50 percent compared to discrete implementations.

Wide input Range 15W DC-DC Converters Have Six-Sided Shielding

TDK Corporation announces the introduction of the TDK-Lambda 15W CCG15S series of DC-DC converters, further extending the CCG product family. Operating over a 4:1 input range, these highly efficiency products are enclosed in a 1 inch by 1 inch six-sided shielded metal case. Applications include telecommunications, process control, broadcast, battery powered and test and measurement equipment.

Mesh Networking Module from Silicon Labs Simplifies Thread and ZigBee Connectivity

Silicon Labs (NASDAQ: SLAB) has introduced a new family of Wireless Gecko modules focused on mesh networking applications with support for best-in-class ZigBee® and Thread software. Silicon Labs’ new MGM111 module is the first in this comprehensive family of multiprotocol modules based on the Mighty Gecko system-on-chip (SoC) device.

ROHM's Isolated Power Supply Control ICs for Industrial Inverters

No optocoupler or auxiliary winding contributes to greater miniaturization, power savings, and reliability

ROHM has recently announced the availability of isolated flyback-type DC/DC converter control ICs for inverters in high power industrial equipment such as FA/solar inverters and power storage systems.

Isolation is almost always built into electronic equipment to provide protection against shock and damage. High voltage, high power industrial applications (including power storage systems and solar inverters which are seeing increased adoption) are no exception, requiring even more stringent reliability demands due to the harsher temperature conditions and the need for continuous, long-term operation.

Renesas Electronics Introduces Low-Power RL78/G11 Microcontrollers to Accelerate Prototyping and Development for Compact Sensor Hub Applications in Industrial, Healthcare and Agricultural Industries

General-Purpose Microcontrollers Equipped in 24-Pin Compact Package Support Up to 13 Sensors

Renesas Electronics America Inc., a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced the RL78/G11 Group of microcontrollers (MCUs), a group of small-package, low-power MCUs that will enable users to easily and more quickly prototype and develop systems that support low-power sensor hubs and sensor application systems. Designed to connect to multiple sensors and convert the sensor output signals to digital data, these compact sensor hubs are used in a wide range of applications, such as computer operating environment monitoring for data center thermocouples in the industrial area, wearable health management devices in the healthcare field, and environmental sensing in greenhouses and factory farms in the agricultural industry.

Brad® M12 Power F-Coded Connectors Deliver 16.0A Current Carrying Capacity

New Cordsets and Receptacles Enable Factory Automation

Molex, LLC has introduced Brad® M12 Power F-Coded cordsets and receptacles, featuring an industry-leading current carrying capacity of up to 16.0A per pin with a blind-mate key design. While the products were developed to meet the growing power requirements of motors, solenoid-operated valves, actuation equipment and 24V DC auxiliary power systems in automation control systems, they are also well suited for LED lighting and commercial vehicle applications.

“The new Brad M12 Power interconnect system offers key advantages over existing connector interfaces that are larger and more expensive, such as M23 and MIL-C-5015 devices,” said Randy Brant, product manager, Molex. “Also, the connector’s F-Coding mating interface is expected to be adopted by the IEC Standard 61076-2-111 and has been submitted for ANSI/EIA acceptance, which will allow for an open industry connector standard. This will increase adoption among a wide array of platforms and manufacturers.”
